“Thanks for a great weekend! A beautiful house with great views. Thanks for being so nice (and even giving us that rabbit). Cheers.”

"In a stunning and often underrated part of the United Kingdom lies an amazing old school house which has been respectfully converted into living accommodation, while retaining charming original features. Our extended family of six adults and three kids fitted comfortably and the two bathrooms are spacious. The view from the garden is breathtaking, and we spent hours enjoying it - helped by the fact that the garden gets the sun from morning to night. You can go for walks without getting in your car, but there are also stunning things to visit (waterfalls and more) within a 30 minute drive. The village of Allenheads has a good pub, a lovely cafe, and a great art gallery. Recommended!
